In collaboration with Forsøgsstationen / The Lab Station, Glad Theatre and Complicité invites you to the sharing of the investigations and explorations
made in the Artistic Development Workshop
The sharing takes place at Forsøgsstationen, Thursday 28th of October, from 17.00 to19.00
What happens if artists approach creativity like they are explorers, astrophysicists, pioneers? If they explore the world from the microscopic to universal? If they apply the laws of physics to performance? If they create through chain reactions, collisions, and combustion?
What happens in the petri dish when artists from all over the world join forces and create collectively in this scientific artistic space?
Glad Theatre has taken the initiative to create a series of international artist exchange residencies. We want to invite the artists we admire into a space of creation and exploration and share with our colleagues. We want to take a step back from our usual production reality and give time to create new forms, new art, make mistakes, and exchange inspiration.
This four-week Artistic Development Workshop NEW FRONTIERS has given a group of artists the opportunity to dive deep into the field of diversity, collective creation, and exploration – without having a production or performance as a goal.
Glad Theatre is an inclusive arts ensemble theatre based in Copenhagen. The participants from Glad Theatre in this workshop are six performers with disabilities and Directors Lars Werner Thomsen and Jesper Michelsen.
Complicité is an international world-renowned touring theatre company based in London. Complicité participants are Josie Daxter, Director and leader of the workshop, joined for four days by first Gareth Fry, Sound Designer, and then by Yasuyo Mochizuki, director and teacher of movements and object theatre (Lecoq).
Forsøgsstationen is a workshop space for professional performing arts, supported by The Danish Arts Foundation, whose remit is to develop the craft of performance as a basis for experimental work and practical research into the performing arts.
